Petals is now able to provide specialist counselling support to bereaved parents who are Hertfordshire residents, no matter where your maternity care was delivered.

The terms of the partnership that enables us to provide this service state that, Petals can provide funded counselling sessions to parents who have a Hertfordshire postcode and who have experienced any of the below within the last year:

  • Second Trimester Loss
  • Termination for Medical Reasons (TFMR)
  • Stillbirth
  • Pregnancy After Loss (You will need to have had counselling with Petals for your loss before you can request counselling for Pregnancy After Loss)

Your referral must come from a health care professional.  If you fit the above criteria please ask the professional referring you to click HERE to complete our Request for Counselling form.

If your loss does not come under any of the above, it would still be hugely beneficial for both you and us if you complete our Request for Counselling Form.  Our counselling coordinator will always respond to you and signpost you to other services that may be able to offer you support.  Furthermore, the collation of accurate data showing how many parents need our support provides important evidence for us to take to funders as we work hard to expand our service.
